Western Europe Update, from a friend and colleague in Belgium:
“Today, Europol announced that it estimates the number of active and trained Islamic terrorists in Europe to be between 3,000 to 5,000. Of course, to that number we have to add ‘moderate’ Moslems who are all too willing to provide support, such as food, lodging, local cover.
“Soft” targets represent the biggest concern.
None of our law-enforcement agencies here are currently prepared to effectively confront Mumbai, Nairobi and Paris scenarios, and everyone knows it.
We are pleading with our politicians to start instituting permitted concealed carry, as is the case within most of CONUS.
So far, our politicians (themselves protected by armed guards) have displayed little interest. Apparently, not yet the required number of bodies of murdered citizens necessary to garner their attention. Their lame excuses for inaction are endless!
Everyone here is nervous, like never since WWII. No one wants to be the ‘canary in the coal-mine!’”
